HITC runs classes, labs and workshops for kids between 8 to 18 years old. Topic modules can range from cyber hygiene to programming and hacking labs. In cyber hygiene we cover the basics such as: what is a hacker? Are you aware of your online presence, such as social media? What is a good password? We teach students how they can protect themselves online. Our session is always finished by hacking away (with our permission!) in our very own kids-friendly hacking environment
Our workshop consists of two parts:
In Part 1 we explain about the risks and possibilities of technology and the way a hacker would look at it. We explain the difference between white hat and black hat hackers and how a hacker could use technology for his cause.
In Part 2 the students start working for themselves. They are provided with an online environment where they can master their shills as a hacker. We will be providing tips and tricks along the way. Our main goals is not to scare but to explain that technology is fun if used for the right cause.
